Calling all mushrooms lovers! This Miso Mushroom Bowl is not only plant-powered and highly nutritious, it is also full of delicious umami flavor. It’s filling and satisfying but leaves you feeling energized and light.
There are numerous research reports on the healing properties of mushrooms, especially when it comes to supporting our immune system. Mushrooms activate or stimulate macrophages in the immune system, a type of white blood cell that “eats” pathogens like bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. So we’ve been amping up our mushroom intake the last few months, but not purely for health reasons- we happen to love them too!
Ingredients in A Mushroom Bowl
- brown rice
- grated carrots
- daikon radish
- Miso Ginger Dressing
How to make a Miso Mushroom Bowl:
Step One: Cook the Rice. The Miso Mushroom Bowl starts with setting the brown rice to cook.
TIP: Here’s a little trick I do to speed things up with short grain brown rice. Boil the rice like you would pasta- with ample water. Then cook the edamame in the rice water.
Drain the rice and let stand 5 minutes.
Step two: While the rice is cooking, saute the mushrooms. Here I’m using portobellos- but feel free to use what you have. The important thing here is getting them nice and brown.
Step three: Prep the veggies. Slice the avocado, shred the carrots, diakon and cabbage.
Step four: Make the Dressing.
The dressing is quite tasty, I’d recommend making a double batch to use on salads, later in the week. 😉
Simply blend the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
The dressing will keep up to 5 days in the fridge, but trust me, it won’t last that long- you’ll want to put it on everything!
Step Five: Assemble your bowls. This recipe makes 4 bowls and is perfect for meal prepping ahead for the busy work week.
Start with a warm bed or short grain brown rice – nutty and delicious.
Add a handful of organic spinach.
Layer up the fresh veggies. Here we’ve got cabbage, daikon, edamame, avocado, and carrots.
Spoon the flavorful Miso Ginger dressing over top. Add sprouts and seeds.
Enjoy your healthy vegan, plant-based Miso Mushroom Bowl and see how energized you will feel!

This plant-based Miso Mushroom Bowl is served over a bed of warm brown rice, topped with healthy veggies and drizzled with the tastiest Sesame Miso Ginger Dressing (that you’ll want to put on everything)! Vegan & Gluten-Free.
- 1 cup short-grain brown rice, uncooked
- 4 large portobello mushrooms, sliced int 1/2 inch slices.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups shredded cabbage
- 1 cup matchstick carrots (or grated)
- 1 cup shredded daikon (or radishes) or cucumbers
- 1 avocado
- 1 cup edamame
- 4 cups baby spinach
- Garnish: Scallions, Sprouts, Sesame seeds
Miso Ginger Dressing: (Double for extra saucy)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons miso
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 small garlic clove
- 2 teaspoons ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- pinch cayenne
Set rice to cook. (see notes)
Cook Mushrooms: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, season the oil with salt and pepper and sear the mushrooms in 2 batches, browning each side. Set aside. (See notes for alternative method)
While the mushrooms are browning, prep the remaining veggies.
Feel free to warm the edamame in the rice water (see photo).
Make the dressing: place everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
Assemble the bowls: Divide warm rice among bowls. (Shallow wide bowls work best here.) Top with a handful of baby spinach. Divide and arrange edamame, cabbage, carrots, daikon, avocado, and mushrooms. Top with scallions, sprouts, sesame seeds. Drizzle with Dressing.
The fastest way to cook rice to cook using the pasta method. Cook rice in 6 -8 cups salted boiling water, until tender, about 15 minutes. Strain and let stand in the strainer over the pot, 5 minutes until fully drained.
If you would rather roast the portobello mushrooms, double the dressing and use some as a marinade, coating the mushrooms well, place them on a parchemt-lined sheet pan and roast at 400F until tender. The cabbage is also very tasty roasted- I’d add more because it will shrink. 😉

Delicious! My only swaps were regular brown mushrooms and radishes. This recipe was sooo good! Very filling. I plan on making double next time for lunches through the week!
The Miso Ginger Dressing is absolutely delicious! I swapped the rice vinegar with apple cider vinegar and the maple syrup with honey then doubled the garlic and ginger quantities for good measure! Given the addition of soy sauce, I omitted the salt and cayenne pepper. Yes, our household is now planning to put this sauce on everything! Thank you! 🙂
Great to hear Sharon!
These recipes are slowing showing my husband (and I) how amazing veggie meals can be!
Loved all your Vegan recipes – helped me to follow a Vegan diet and my cholesterol is now in normal range
Great to hear Alyson!
Made it several times, it’s so delicious! And this dressing’s truly remarkable. Thank you for the recipe.
So happy you enjoyed this!
Just made this…it’s delicious!
Thanks Lynne! Glad you enjoyed this!
I love this reminder to make something fresh and tasty! I love the suggestions for this bowl and I truly love the Miso Dressing!
Thanks Jill! Hope you are well ❤️
Sylvia, this recipe is fantastic. The crunch, the flavor, the dressing… all so good. Great for a wonderful meatless meal. Thank you for your great recipes.
This was really delicious and yes, that dressing is next level and the miso really takes it there. I used king trumpet mushrooms which made this bowl so delicious. Will definitely make again with many variations!
Yes so much room for variations here!
The dressing is sublime. Will use on fish and chicken in the future, and as salad dressing. Brilliant note on roasting mushrooms and cabbage with the sauce. I am a huge fan of the Paprika app and this recipe spurred me to create a new menu category, Veggie Reset. Do yourself a favor and make this and add to rotation!
Glad you like this Jill!
Great recipe – even on soba noodles! I just doubled the sauce to ensure the noodles had lots of flavor too. I also used a little less oil than what is called for, and the sauce was still lovely 🙂 Thank you!!
Love that Jenn.
This is SO good. Another one of your recipes that will become a regular in my household. It was easy to use the veggies I had at home already.
Thanks so much Jamie! Glad you enjoyed this!
Delicious! thank you Sylvia!
We absolutely love this beautiful and nutritious bowl. It’s perfect for a summer evening or heart weekend lunch and is good with quinoa as well. Thank you!
Great to hear!
Delicious! Made at home a few times and it was a hit at our mother’s day brunch this year.
Glad to hear this Kyra!
I just made this for dinner and it is simply amazing!!! I wouldn’t change a thing. The dressing should be bottled and sold in stores so that people who don’t cook can enjoy it too. Thank you Sylvia
Haha- thanks Jennie!
Lovely fresh and tasty salad bowl and delicious dressing. We used black and basmati rice and stir fried some garlic shoots to add to the bowl. The mushrooms are the highlight of the dish, many cooks just sauté mushrooms and this isn’t the right way to bring out the wonderful umami flavours.
Thank you Sylvia for another super healthy and satisfying recipe for a main meal, which even the carnivore of the family loved.
Glad you enjoyed this Leonie!
I plan to make this tomorrow. Do you think I could add some slices of cooked salmon to this?
Yes, I think that would taste great!
Thank you. Your website is our go-to- thank you so very much.
Easy and delicious. This is a great vegetarian dish, perfect for Meatless Monday. Or Tuesday, or Wednesday 🙂
Haha! Thanks Kristin!
Excellent sauce! We mix and match the bowls ingredients to whatever is in our fridge! Thanks!!
Awesome, glad you enjoyed this!
I made this for dinner tonight . It was absolutely delicious . It is a fantastic recipe . A definite keeper . Thanks Silvia
Thanks Rohini! Glad you enjoyed this!
Another delicious recipe- so good- a hit with everyone! Thank you! How long do you think the dressing can be kept in the fridge for?
Glad you liked this Rachel. The dressing will keep up to a week in the fridge!
